Home to all 15 Mexican Grand Prix which counted towards the Formula 1 World Championship, the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez hosted the first event back in 1963. It now returns here after 23 years and the 4.421 kilometre track has undergone a major renovation. The main straight is a good 1.2 kilometres long, but this is not a low downforce track. In fact, there are some slow corners and a series of esses where good aero downforce is a key requirement. The most distinctive part of the track was the final corner, called Peraltada, a long slightly raised hairpin, which leads onto the very fast main straight. The latest changes mean that that half the old Peraltada is no longer in use and now, a series of three slow corners join up to the mid-point of the corner. Scuderia Ferrari won twice in Mexico, in 1970 with Jacky Ickx and in 1990 with Alain Prost.
